Donald Trump Does Not Want ‘So-Called A-List Celebrities’ At His Inauguration

Donald Trump wants ‘people’, not celebrities at his inauguration.

President-Elect Trump made it clear in a tweet on Friday that he doesn’t want “so-called ‘A’ list celebrities” at his inauguration on 20 January. He tweeted that all the celebrities want tickets to his inauguration, but that he doesn’t need them there, since they did “NOTHING” for Hillary Clinton.

The inaugural committee has been having a hard time getting anyone famous to perform at Trump’s inauguration. So far, only 16-year-old America’s Got Talent runner-up from 2010 Jackie Evancho, the Rocketttes, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir have been scheduled to perform at the event.

Celebrities like Elton John, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Garth Brooks, Ice T, John Legend and KISS have all stated that they would not perform.

In the past, performers at the inauguration included big names like Beyoncé, Aretha Franklin, Jay Z, Mariah Carey, Bob Dylan, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor.

On Friday Alec Baldwin jokingly tweeted that he would perform, but only if he is allowed to sing the ACDC song, Highway To Hell.

      Well, the mormons av subtle hints of supporting Trump’s manifesto in their tenets so no surprises there. BTW, the choir IS good, but they are not all that. Vienna Boys are the realest MVPs

    Who does he think he is fooling? No one wants to perform at your inauguration and then you turn it around and say you dont need them there. This man is a clown shaa.

    Look at the orange ape in a suit!

    Why would any A-list celebrity even want to associate themselves with you? Some stains just don’t come off.

    @ambi you can’t compare mormon choir with vienna, the boys in vienna are dope, but then, mormon tabernacle is the only choir in the world that re arrange all their musical scores to fit the 12 parts of the choir instead of our usual SATB, they have 3 soprano parts, 3 alto parts, 3 tenor parts and 3 bass parts, I can say they have the best of blend after the vatican choir. I wish there is something close to morning tabernacle choir in Nigeria, I go just change church
